Editor, the Advocate:
Freedom is not free, and prayer is needed.
We are asking everyone to say a prayer for "Darkhorse" 3rd Battalion 5th Marines and their families. They are fighting it out in Afghanistan, and they have lost 12 Marines in four days.
It would be nice to see the message spread if more people could pass it on. Nothing has been in the media about these guys because no one seems to care.

All are Marines who gave their lives for you this week.
